HC Deb 25 July 1923 vol 167 cc487-8W

asked the President of the Board of Education if, in view of the opinion which he stated at the opening of Ledbury grammar school on Saturday, 21st July, that an uneducated democracy is too great a risk for a sane nation, he will take steps to improve the facilities for physical and mental education in the elementary and secondary schools of the Kingdom and remove the financial embargo placed upon the educational institutions of the Kingdom?


It is, as he recently stated in this House, the desire and intention of my right hon. Friend to effect all possible improvements in the educational system of this country within the limits imposed upon him by the straitened financial circumstances of the present time.
